Rootstock Software, the provider of cloud-based manufacturing and supply chain applications, is to combine forces with FinancialForce.com, the provider of cloud-based financial management applications to deliver a supply chain and accounting solution for salesforce.com customers.
The announcement follows hard on the heels of FinancialForce’s tie up with HostAnalytics revealed to FSN last week. That arrangement leverages Host Analytic’s budgeting and planning solution. “These powerful combinations demonstrate the benefits of the supplier ecosystem on the Force.com platform and how readily solutions can be integrated on because of the shared technology,” says Gary Simon, FSN’s managing editor.
“Astrum Solar’s rapid expansion facilitated our requirement for a solution that could interweave the ever-changing environment of the solar industry with the rapid development in our company,” said Vadim Polikov, President and Chief Executive Officer of Astrum Solar. “We chose this team because together they had the tightest integration in the marketplace with our own proprietary Force.com enterprise platform and that will enable our organization to sustain our flexibility and commitment to the customer, as we continue to grow our business and spread solar power to roofs across the country.”
By uniting Rootstock manufacturing and supply chain applications with FinancialForce Accounting, Salesforce CRM customers like Astrum Solar can gain deeper operational insights and control while minimizing painful and costly IT infrastructure modifications. The power of a shared platform enabled Rootstock and FinancialForce.com to quickly build a seamless integration between the applications that couldn’t be achieved if they didn’t share the same data model.
“In today’s fast-paced economy, the ability to track and adapt to any number of variables in real time is not just advantageous – it’s critical,” said Patrick Garrehy, CEO and founder of Rootstock Software. “Manufacturers working to secure a competitive edge are now looking to their planning and control solutions to deliver this increased agility. When this planning evolution is paired with a complete accounting solution, the result is an unparalleled and holistic systems overview.”
“Manufacturers need trusted applications to manage their global operations and financial transactions,” said Jeremy Roche, President and CEO, FinancialForce.com. “By combining Rootstock with FinancialForce Accounting, customers can leverage the power of the Force.com platform for not only greater operational efficiencies but for significant competitive advantage.“
